Walk­ing for her­itage

Lebanon Traveler - - NEWS -

For the sev­enth year, the Le­banon Moun­tain Trail As­so­ci­a­tion or­ga­nizes its an­nual Thru-walk, a trek along the Le­banon Moun­tain Trail (LMT), which raises aware­ness on the im­por­tance of pre­serv­ing the nat­u­ral, cul­tural and his­tor­i­cal her­itage which lies along it. The LMT is the first long-dis­tance hik­ing trail in Le­banon and extends 470km from Andqet in the north to Mar­jay­oun in the south, pass­ing through 75 towns and vil­lages. This year the Thru-walk takes the theme of cul­tural and ar­chae­o­log­i­cal her­itage, ad­vo­cat­ing for the con­ser­va­tion of the an­cient trail and the cul­tural and arche­o­log­i­cal re­mains of past civ­i­liza­tions found along its route, which are of­ten ne­glected. Hik­ers can join the group at dif­fer­ent points through­out the trail.
